Private donation to fund tuition Funds to pay for up to three years at San Jacinto College
PASADENA, Texas — The San Jacinto College Foundation has received a private donation to fund up to three years of tuition for the high school class of 2021.
“On behalf of San Jacinto College, our Board of Trustees, and the students who will benefit from this generous gift, I say thank you,” said Dr. Laurel Williamson, San Jacinto College Deputy Chancellor and President. “This last year has been a challenge for so many students, and the ability to remove the financial burden for thousands of high school graduates will allow them to attend college and earn their workforce certificate or associate degree. We are incredibly grateful for this thoughtful and transformational gift.”
The funds will be used to create the 21 Forward Scholarship. All high school graduates that live within the San Jacinto College taxing district at the time of their high school graduation are eligible. The scholarship is good for up to three years at San Jacinto College (through December 2024). Students must begin classes at San Jac this Fall, take a minimum of six credit hours each semester, and must apply for financial aid annually.
